We asked our families how they would like to make music with us during these changing times and it led to offering 4 different ways to gather for our engaging Music Together classes for children ages 5 and under.
Music Together Online: Our interactive classes have gone online where your teacher will lead you and your little one in song each week in class!
Music Together Pods: The same 5 children will each bring one of their favorite grown-ups with them to make music in the classroom each week.
Music Together Hybrid: There will be an online class every week and families will take turns meeting in the classroom every other week so that we can limit the number of children to 5 in the classroom.
Music Together Outdoors: Let's join our voices together outside where there's plenty of room for physical distancing and moving to the beat. When the weather turns, we'll either bundle up or meet online via Zoom.
During the 10-weeks of Fall Session which starts September 13, we'll all be exploring the Bongos Song Collection with a new illustrated songbook, CD and online access to the music.
We take the safety of our teachers and families very seriously, which is why we've come up with a safety plan for the classes that we plan to hold in the classroom and outside.
That said, we'll only be able to make music in-person as long as Chicago remains in Phase 4 of the governor's reopening plan. If we revert to Phase 3, families will be notified and all classes will automatically go online.
Let's all do our part to keep this virus under control by washing our hands, wearing our masks and keeping our distance, so that we can continue making music together!
